    9/11 terrorists had ZERO social media footprint. So harassing students will catch real terrorists? The whole idea is stupid and laughable. I am angry, that my taxes are being used to pay salaries of damn fools, who would implement dumb ideas.

    Does this apply to B1B2 also ? As i want to be just tourist.

  8. Brother, while listening to your video using earphones, your voice seems to be coming only to the left earpiece and music on the right earpiece. I dunno if you have done it deliberately or it is the microphone issue, but is annoying if your voice doesn’t get to both of our ears.

    Just an opinion. Keep Smiling. Keep Hustling.

  9. Thanks bro ☺ Really helpful video

  10. This is a good security measure but there must be safeguards to prevent arbitrary visa denials.
